Watch this video to learn more about the basics of nutrition. The foundation of nutrition basics includes learning about micro and macro-nutrients. In today’s age of processed food it is possible to eat a lot of calories with very poor micro-nutrients. This video will break down the essentials of micro-nutrients and macro-nutrients and how you can use them to help customize your diet.
The term “Nutrition Basics” is a bit misleading here, it dives into science beyond basic very quickly so it’s not for those who wanted a slow learning curve. That being said, it is all very useful information and it will help you a lot in your understanding of how food types can be broken down, which diets might focus on certain nutrients and why. We suggest you stick with it and power through the fact that it may seem a bit daunting, it’ll be worth it!
